Without pictures, no idea. Highly doubt it is a 1976. Date does not have much impact on value. Is this spam?

This is not spam! I bought this bike when I was a kid and cannot find any information on it except that this bike was made exclusively for the Japanese Olympic Team!

I doubt it was built for the Japanese Olympic team. Panasonic may have built team bikes for the Olympics at one point, but I'll bet it wasn't a DX-2000. The DX models are eighties (every one I've seen is), and the 2000 is low on the Panasonic totem pole. We likely need pictures. It will be a very problematic sale due to frame size, if it is indeed that large. 31" frames would fit someone about seven feet tall. Large frames are very hard to move. Another reason for pictures. And what components does it have on it?

Are you sure it is a 1976? In 1986 Panasonic made a Team Japan but it was not black, 1985 they made a black Team.

He didn't say *which* team. Maybe it was for the basketball team. Oh wait, they didn't have basketball in the Olympics yet then... Volleyball?
